    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    After reading different posts on here, it’s got me thinking if there is a “Fuel” additive that does actually work?

    As if anymore proof of the W123's rugged longevity was required, it exists fictionally in Mad Max 4. No idea what role it plays, but that it still survives in such a dark, dystopian world, is oddly reassuring, should we ever get into such a mess that results in the world Mad Max lives in. :lol...
